Now Trending: CPNA and Ron Robinson Co-Host Trend Sneak Peek


Cosmoprof North America (CPNA) co-hosted a sneak peek of the latest global beauty trends at the Ron Robinson flagship store in Santa Monica, California.

The event included a panel hosted by CPNA marketing director Daniela Ciocan featuring Ron Robinson, Andy Howell of MatchCo and LA fashion week producer Arthur Chipman, who discussed how to differentiate between trends and fads, and how trends become part of the culture.

Among the trends highlighted were girl power, portability, sustainability, cooling, ingestible beauty, and the marriage of beauty and technology, among many others. Brands—many of whom were making their US debut—were displayed throughout the store, and several participants offered product demonstrations. At the end of the event, guests were given gift bags including some of the products on display.
